The Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers. Eowyn's Victory dress

Why: I first saw promo pictures of this dress and fell in love. At the time, there was only this picture so it was unsure as of what this dress was or anything really, so I gathered information, speculations and such and started looking for fabric. After much time ACS found that this was a jacket over Eowyn's ice Blue dress that she dreams in.

I found silk brocade at ThaiSilks.com the "Helen" pattern, and I found some silk matalasse in the "rose" pattern (also from ThaiSilks) and bought dye from DharmaTrading.com and made the dress.

To me this dress was quite a fiasco, it took many a blood and tears to completion. the raglan sleeves were impossible and the embroidery on the front was hard to see, then once I figured out the beads in the front the company was out of stock for what seemed forever. I did finish this dress and I am not quite happy but it was a learning experience, one day I hope to remake it. it is lined in silk habotai. and in tow parts, a jacket with a dress.

the original

my version
